Well, I don't really much like any of Syd's solo stuff; it's ok and nowhere near as dreadful as Music From the Body. However, the poll should still have included his solo stuff too.

Er, no. It is just the 'least worst'. Everyone who voted for something other than 'Wet Dream' could have thought it the second worst.

If you want to know what everyone's favourite solo album is then we would need a different poll.

My vote is for On An Island. I still think it is terrible and completely uninspired.

I disagree. I love Syd's crap. But then again I am pretty much in love with anything Syd Barrett.

Who are you disagreeing with? And are you voting FOR "Syd's crap" ... because the vote is for the worst solo album

What I meant was, I think his stuff is fantastic. Although not very Floydian at times, I think it was a good decision that it wasn't on the list of options.

Hmmm, well, for the sake of completeness they should have been, but they probably would have received few votes
